Cilic advances to final

LONDON—The key, for both players, was to deal with the big serve.

Marin Cilic did it better.

The seventh-seeded Croat advanced to his second major final by beating Sam Querrey 6-7 (6), 6-4, 7-6 (3), 7-5 earlier today on Centre Court.

He next faces Roger Federer or Tomas Berdych in Sunday's men's final at the All England Club.

Bombers aware of threat posed by Ray

Winnipeg defensive back T.J. Heath does well picking off passes, but doesn't expect Toronto quarterback Ricky Ray to add to his reputation when the Argonauts visit the Blue Bombers tonight.

With a league-leading three interceptions in just two games this season, Heath is well on pace to exceed last year's seven, which was good enough to tie for tops in the CFL.

Federer too much for Raonic

LONDON—In a Wimbledon rematch, Milos Raonic proved to be no match for Roger Federer.

The third-seeded Swiss great—trying for a record eighth Wimbledon title—systematically dismantled Raonic in quarter-final action at the All England Club yesterday with a 6-4, 6-2, 7-6 (4) victory.

“I can say with fact that I did everything I could to try to find a way to win,” Raonic said.

Mills pinch-hitting as AL all-star manager

MIAMI—Among the most unlikely all-stars is a former 17th-round draft pick with one career home run.

Brad Mills won't swing a bat tonight. But he will pinch-hit.

The Cleveland Indians' bench coach will manage the American League team as a replacement for Indians' manager Terry Francona, who is recovering from a procedure last week to correct an irregular heartbeat.
